Last week there was a day that many of the classes were out at Athletics, so the only students left behind at school working were the Foundation and Year 1/2 classes.

This proved too great a temptation for the Prep O students who decided they needed to take over the entire school and go out and ‘Rule the School’.

Don’t tell anyone you’ve seen these exclusive, insider shots of the day the Preps took control!

Snuffles House

In class we have recently viewed a clip of the story, Snuffles house.

We have talked about what Snuffles needs in his house in order for it to provide adequate shelter. What size does it need to be? What shape would work best for Snuffles? Why is space important in our classroom? Why would space be important for Snuffles?

The students were then given time to create a design brief outlining the use of a variety of materials to create a home for another little creature.

Friday afternoon saw the “The Block” come to life as students were engaged in creating a house for their small creature. It was mammoth and in the end great creative designs were built, inspected and displayed. Well done to everyone!

Mathematics – Length

Posted by owenf | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on August 27, 2017

In Mathematics our Learning Intention has been that:

We are learning to compare the length of objects

Our Success Criteria was:

  • I can compare objects by placing one object against another to determine which is longer
  • I can use measurement tools that can help us to compare
  • I can use words to describe measurement attributes, such as tall, taller, longer, long, longest

In order to learn this we shared the story of ‘The Long Red Scarf’ then each student needed to use fabric, wool and other materials to calculate, measure and create a scarf that would sit and be suitable for their own teddy bear.

During our Religion lessons we have visited the St. Anne’s chapel. In this unit the students have learnt about religious imagery, the church building and its furnishings, and the gestures used in liturgy. They learnt about the name and location of our local parish, and the role of our priest, Father Joe in our parish.

This year for St. Anne’s Feast Day our Assembly item was a trip down memory lane with music and songs from past eras. The wonderful Foundation students tripped the light fantastic and came out rocking and rolling to the tune of Rock Around The Clock. Wow! They did a great job and loved dressing up as little rock’n’rollers!

In Inquiry this term we are learning about:

How do built environments suit the needs of users?

Why do living things need shelter?

Why are there different types of buildings/shelters???

What are the different purposes?

Does a purpose influence a design?

We have built ‘bird houses’ with Anatoli from Craftpower and will turn them into works of Art for our school Art Show later this term.
